IT-Service-Management Foundation

This course shows you how to implement IT Service Management (ITSM) in a pragmatic, clear and simple way. The focus is on the concrete application of proven processes for smooth IT operations.

Optionally, you can obtain the FitSM® Foundation certification after this course.

Main Topics

The Service Management Foundation course teaches the basics of service management in two days, focusing on the most important processes to ensure smooth IT operations. FitSM® forms the basis for this course. The optional FitSM® Foundation certification can be obtained after this course. FitSM® was designed to be compatible with the ISO/IEC 20000-1 standard (requirements for a service management system) and the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL). Although the FitSM® process model, requirements, recommended activities, and role model are aimed at a lightweight implementation, FitSM® can also be used as a first step towards a “full-fledged” ITSM implementation, for example using ITIL® Good Practices and/or aiming at conformance with ISO/IEC 20000-1.
